Default ACE Air Cargo

Anyone have any info on this company? Their website says that they're hiring FO's.

Do you have to have someone on the inside in order to get a callback? Are they really hiring FO's with a wet commercial cert into the right seat of a 1900C?

What're the schedules like? Two weeks on two off? Pay pretty decent? How many hours are their pilots averaging there monthly? 80-100?

Any info on this outfit would be greatly apprecited, as I know nothing about them.

If this is Alaska Central Express cargo in Anchorage, I can tell you a little about them...although I never worked there.

Not a 121 operation, so quite possible hiring pilots with very low time to the right seat of a Beech 1900.
Don't know what schedule they work today. It was 4-5 days a week around 10 yrs. ago. They would typically start early am out of Anchorage, and be back mid-late afternoon.
You do have to help unload the a/c at the outstations.

Somewhat of a checkered accident history.

Might be cheaper and easier to find someone to fly as a copilot, rather than find someone to come to the airport at 3am to help unload 4,000lbs of letters. 1200hrs in the right seat of a single pilot cargo bird might not be the best for the resume. A few hundred hours could teach you a lot though.

They use one of those "may not require a FO, but the plane can be flown 2 crew" reasonings to let you log the flight time.
They get an insurance discount for flying it multi-crew....and someone to help hump boxes at the outstations.

If you really want to build time -and get paid...last I knew, they would fly 60-80 hours an month.
Can't speak to the current wages. 10 yrs. ago it was like $10/hr...but, then again, a LOT of places were!!

It's not the worst way to start a career. And, you will learn a lot.

Thanks for all the replies.

Anyone know if you have to have someone on the inside, to be able to get their attention to score an interview?
